How to (sort of) get Truetransparency on Win7A lot of people ask me how to make TrueTransparency play nice with Windows 7.How to (sort of) get Truetransparency on Win75 years ago in Personal More Like This
The short answer is: You can... well sort of.
Here are the general problems (I'm going to assume people with Win7 are on the 64-bit version, or Win7 x64).
1) Explorer windows are not skinned (or any 64-bit programs for that matter).
2) Explorer windows skin, but the toolbar is completely transparent.
First, you will need both TrueTransparency x86 and x64.
For your convenience, here is a zip with both (x64 can be hard to find): http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7100381/TrueTransparency.zip
To skin all windows, you will need to run both the TrueTransparency.exe in the TrueTransparency x64 AND TrueTransparency x86 folders.
At this point, all windows should be skinned (with the exclusion of "special" windows like Google chrome, Command Prompt, GIMP/Photoshop, Task Manager, etc.
You may notice that the explorer toolbar is completely transparent. There are two workarounds for this.
One involves removing the too
Litestep on Windows 7 (UPDATED)UPDATE: this tutorial has gotten a lot of attention since i posted it 2 years ago.. so i decided to update the information, add information and even a nice video tutorial by andredk which is a little long, but very detailed. i updated the old journal and submitted a new one for good measureLitestep on Windows 7 (UPDATED)4 years ago in Personal More Like This
installing litestep is not a big deal. it has dependencies like any other application, and without them it will error. assuming your system meets all the requirements right now you can stop reading this and install litestep using the Omar Installer. (omar is the guy who created the installer) litestep was built using the x86 architecture so a x86 system is a prerequisite, however people have managed to install and use litestep on x64 systems.

Q. What kind of liquid eye liner do you use?
I used to use this: L'Oreal Lineur Intense Felt Tip Eyeliner - Color Carbon black (http://www.drugstore.com/loreal-lineur-intense-felt-tip-eyeliner-carbon-black-690/qxp179728), but now I don't use that anymore. Some days I don't even use eyeliner (usually when I work, I don't since I wear glasses at work, XD). Now I use Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Pen liner in Black (http://www.google.com/products/catalog?rlz=1C1TSNF_enUS436US436&q=urban+decay+24/7+glide+on+eye&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=11807202801938878064&sa=X&ei=0jvhTrOzIsS1sQKirOXCBg&ved=0CJMBEPMCMAU).

You need to draw my beautiful OC Yumi and her awesome and cute boyfriend Pemeku! x33
They are my fovourite couple, i REALLY love them so it wasn't hard to guess who i will choose xD
Yumi: She's an angel. Yu-chan is cute, little stupid, she loves everything. Like an angel she's really nice and helpful C:
Pemeku: He's ordinary human. Pemeku is serious but he's humorous too. He's always smilling. After he was Yumi's boyfriend he allways blushed when she was next to him. Now he's the person who always needs to kiss her, hug etc xD He's really sweet and romantic.

Mypaint 1.1 : A guide through the new featuresAt the very end of 2012, the code of the famous free and open-source digital-painting program Mypaint 1.1 was released. If you still using Mypaint 1.0 , you might be interested to see what happened into this one year of change. For reading an excellent review about it , please read the very cool and full article wrote by Alexandre Prokoudine on Libre Graphic World , he also made a cool video.Mypaint 1.1 : A guide through the new features3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here I will focus on writing a review for Mypaint 1.0 user, to let them know what changed and how they will benefit from it.
On Canvas Notifications
Now Mypaint is a bit more talkative when you press '+' or '-' on the keyboard to zoom with the 'Control+Space' shortcut. It was difficult back to Mypaint 1.0 days to have an idea of the actual zoom level. For the future development , this box system was made to be reusable ; so Mypaint might have better and better visual feedbacks on the next versions.The notifications are activated by defaults , and concern for the moment only

Macabre OC ContestAfter some debating, I have results!Macabre OC Contest3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
First Place: $30 USD or the equivalent in dA points
Awarded because it is incredibly, incredibly creepy to look at... I actually can't look at the picture for more than a couple of seconds before I always want to navigate away.
Second Place: $20 USD or the equivalent in dA points
The design of this creature is so cool, while also being really appealing to look at! I like that he lacks legs.
Third Place: $10 USD or the equivalent in dA points
This is super eerie and interesting to look at at the same time, one of the few that lacked a definitive human form. Worm-like creatures are always very interesting.
Some special mentions, other entries I debated against these that I also adored (they will be given a $5 or 400 DA Point honorary prize):
There were a lot of very good entries, and a wide range of macabre subjects!

It's time for our next deviantWEAR Design Challenge, and this one is a little different. Writers, you play a crucial role! We're calling on deviants to create an original phrase, statement, or saying and transform these writings into an artistic and unique t-shirt design. Entries should display an imaginative phrase, expression, or statement as well as a beautiful presentation of the words in a "Design Typography" style.
We are not looking for famous quotes by historical figures, fictional characters, famous poets, and the like. Instead, we are excited to see designs and phrases in your very own words. So let your creative juices flow and share your inspiring words with the world! A picture tells a thousand words, but your typographical design for the "Original Quotes" entry will tell us even more!
Participation is easy!
